Silver therapy for treatment of HIV
Oct 21, 2009

My son,20, has recently been diagnosed HIV with CD4 count 275. Doctor has advised to wait till it comes below 200 before starting medicine. I have come across a site claiming treatment through silver therapy. He claims "This silver therapy is accredited and patented by USA government (United States Patent and Trademark Office) see that in Government website- Logon to And see the proof. silver therapy being practised in USA Legally in more than 1200 hospitals more than 100 companies are producing silver therapy. FDA is opposing this therapy but Federal Govt approved it. johnson Can i try it before allopathic medicine is started. It may delay growth of Virus for sometimes at least. Please advise

Response from Dr. Henry

I do not recommend silver therapy. Data supporting its use is unimpressive. I have had several patients undergo silver therapy with bad results so my personal experience has not been good. KH

Safe to start febuxostat/Uloric?
